We can put set animations under static PNG assets to jazz up stuff without adding a ton of storage overhead.
For sure a little extra - but we can maybe marry our tabs with new brand styles.
This prototype pops the icon, turns it 3D, rotates it differently each time, adds a soft blur background, moves the text, and bolds it too.
A standard tab bar using these new icons is still super cool, and takes a fraction of the time.
Stylistically, there are things we can add and take away, but once you move away from standard, theres a base level of work we'll need to do regardless of how many specific items animate around.
The plasticine style looks foreign compared to some things we're doing today, but if we freshen up our style, it'll work great.
